JDK-8144048 :  
JDK-7047033 changed the behavior of the Card.disconnect() function.
There should be a flag provided which can be used to restore the old behavior.

This flag will be used:
in jdk7 - set by default, so by default the behavior is old.
in jdk8 - unset by default, so the behavior is new.
in jdk9 - the flag is ignored, the behavior is new.
Fix failed. See JDK-8051614

SQE is ok to take the fix in 8u20.

- Fix for Release : 7u72, 8u20 - Risk Analysis : Low - compatibility option - Testing (done/to-be-done) : tck tests will be used to test this functionality

Restored PSU14_04-approved label, as there is code change associated with the issue.

removed the PSU14_04-approved label.

Yes, this needs code. We have been discussing whole smartcard related bunch with Ivan and I went ahead approved this one as we will need to have it anyway
